Linking Library Streaming Media in BeachBoard

These streaming media collections are purchased by the library (and not available freely to the general public).  To provide CSULB students access to these titles, links to individual media items must be routed via the library's server.

To link to a whole library media collection (e.g. Naxos):

  1. Find the item on the Databases A to Z page.
  2. Click on the Share icon to the right of the database.
  3. Copy the URL provided.
  4. Paste the URL in BeachBoard.

To use individual items from collections, the process will differ with which collection you are using, see below for specific instructions, or contact your librarian.

Adding Items to BeachBoard

In general, to add an item, find a URL for the item and add this in front of its URL: "https://csulb.idm.oclc.org/login?url=" .  This will prompt the user to log in with their Campus ID and MyCSULB Password to access our paid collections.  For help, contact your librarian.

Adding Academic Video Online videos to BeachBoard

To add Academic Video Online videos to BeachBoard, find the video in the Academic Video Online database.  Click Embed/Link at the bottom of the video.  Copy the "Permanent link to [title]" to use in BeachBoard. (Students will need to be on campus or logged in to the library to view the videos OR add "https://csulb.idm.oclc.org/login?url=" to the beginning of the URL to force log in from off-campus.)

Adding Kanopy videos to BeachBoard

To add Kanopy videos to BeachBoard, find the video in the Kanopy database.  Click Share/Embed at the bottom of the video.  Copy the "Share Link" to use in BeachBoard. (Students will need to be on campus or logged in to the library to view the videos OR add "https://csulb.idm.oclc.org/login?url=" to the beginning of the URL to force log in from off-campus). FACULTY: If you plan on using a particular video in a class, it is highly recommended that you put it in Course Reserves.  Doing so will allow students to find it quickly, and you will be notified if that specific content is taken down.

Adding JoVE videos to BeachBoard

You can add specific JoVe videos to your course by finding the video in JoVE, then sharing it with yourself via email (there is a button for this in the upper right).  Once you have the URL sent to you in the email, you can add that to BeachBoard. (Students will need to be on campus or logged in to the library to view the videos OR add "https://csulb.idm.oclc.org/login?url=" to the beginning of the URL to force log in from off-campus.)

Adding NAXOS music to BeachBoard

You can add specific music to BeachBoard from NAXOS.  Search for the songs you want, and on the left side click "Show Static URL"  Now under each song is a URL you can copy and put in BeachBoard. (Students will need to be on campus or logged in to the library to view the videos OR add "https://csulb.idm.oclc.org/login?url=" to the beginning of the URL to force log in from off-campus.)
